Love Not Money makes another stop on its talent-scouting trip, inviting another young Leeds based producer S. Jay to join the label’s ever-growing motley crew with a little help from his friends Sweet Beat & Ostertag.
The EP starts off with ‘I Got You’ taking us straight into a prime time jacking session. The raw combination of a moody bassline, classic house sounds and a vocal loop offset by energetic percussion kick’s off the EP from the get-go.
Next up is ‘Lucky’, a collaboration with Ostertag. Another fine example of bass infused House. A catchy sub bass groove underpinned with mellow stabs make this a hypnotic peak-time selection… cue the classic Organ on the second drop and you’ve got another track ready to raise the roof.
On the flip side is ‘Back In NY’ a dance floor destroyer with a loving nod to the early 90s, old school chords, tightly programmed drums, hooky 90s vocals and atmospheric sounds of the busy Harlem suburbs. Rounding of the EP S. Jay teams up with long-time production partner on alias project Sweet Beat to turn out ‘No Problem’, a more anthemic stripped back track centred around a mesmerising hypnotic synth-line that drops into a Tom driven affair; the perfect antidote to the big-beat club tracks of the EP’s predecessors.
